Is your job as a massage therapist taking a physical toll on you?

No surprise!

Massage therapy is a physically demanding job that often leads to chronic pain from the feet and ankles up to the upper back and neck.

Here are 3 tips for self-care that will help keep you pain-free:
1. The ergonomics of your massage table (i.e., the height) are crucial to reducing physical pain.

2. An exercise program focusing on developing the muscles on the back of the body, as well a strong, balanced core.

3. Take 1 – 2 minute stretching breaks between massage clients and a 10-15-minute stretching break at the end of the day.

Ultimately, an ergonomic workspace, a targeted exercise routine, and stretching breaks may help keep you pain-free as well as reduce any discomfort you are currently experiencing.

As a massage therapist, you are passionate about helping people by providing hands-on caregiving massage therapy that offers a balance between empathy, compassion, and professionalism.

Having comprehensive liability insurance for massage therapy also guarantees a level of confidence and is a best business practice.
